So, I follow the blog of a friend of mine from high school (yes, you, Ashley). I've always gotten comments from people about how much my blog sounds like me, which makes me chuckle. Her blog DEFINITELY sounds like her when I'm reading it.

Lately, she's done a couple of vlogs--video blogs, for those who aren't familiar with that term. I can't help but wonder how a vlog would turn out if I were to record one. On the one hand, I think I would look and sound like a complete nerd. Seriously. But on the other hand, it could be fun. Right? Maybe? I don't know.

I enjoy the fact that my blog sounds like me. I made a conscious decision when I started my blog to write the way I talk, because my actual writing style is much more...formal. And definitely does not sound like me. But the point of a blog isn't to impress people with my fabulous vocabulary and knowledge of grammar. So, I sacrifice a little bit of that so my blog actually sounds....right.

But how would a vlog sound? See, I'm concerned that I would ramble. I tend to ramble even when I write posts, but at least I can self-edit. If I were recording, I'd have to just start over, or go with the rambling. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

So, what do my (few) readers think? Should I create a video post? Or no?

  1. HAhahahaha!! I guess I'm glad that my blog sounds like me. I, too, have to make a concerted effort at times to write how I talk. It has gotten easier over time though! I think you should definitely do a vlog! In case you haven't noticed--I totally every one of them. (Psst! I even have video editing software, but I'm too lazy to edit, so people are forced to listen to my rambling if they want to watch the vlog....) DO IT!!
